with water at a premium, everything from milk and beef to basic crops could be harder to produce. for more on the drought let's go over to ann and phil. >> statewide drive has gone from bad to worse over the past 11 days. >> trivalley will be among the hardest hit areas in california. >> 80% of the districts water supply comes from the state. that's been cut to zero. >> it is drastic. it will be a severe hardship to the communities that we serve. >> zone seven is a special water district that contracts with the state to bring sierra water here. luckily they have been saving water. there is concern the delta water in the district's backup reservoir will get too salty to drink. that capping off a week of concerning drought regulations. >> there will be no water if
these conditions exist. >> reporter: water districts need to tap into other supplies. they are at 37% capacity and with 750,000 acres of farm land depending on reservoirs like these, it will be one of the toughest years on record for agriculture. >> we have a problem. as governor, i'm responsible for the whole state. >> reporter: 17 communities sate wide could run out of water in the next few months. southern california water officials met with the governor to talk about how extra reserves in the south could help communities in the north. president obama personally called the governor offering federal assistance. >> he pledged his support to help california. >> reporter: several local water agencies are calling for cut backs in water use.

from the mountain yesterday. a day earlier authorities allowed thousands of people to return home believing the danger from the volcano had receded. today rescuers found a body two miles from the volcano's peak. it is a case of bad timing for woody allen. on the same day as the writer's guild awards charges of sexual abuse surfaced again. he is nominated for best screen play of blue jasmine. his adopted daughter is accusing allen of sexually abusing her when she was seven years old. there was an investigation in 1992 that concluded he had not been sexually abused. there is a new delay in golden state warriors planning to build an arena on the san francisco waterfront. >> the team is saying the arena definitely will not open in 2017 as invisioned.
this comes as cost estimates doubled for renovating piers 30 and 32. >> this is one of the most ambitious sport developing deals and buildings we have seen on the west coast in the history. and the latest with the project, we have rick welch, president of the warrior. what's behind the decision to hold off for a year? >> we are doing what we said we would do. which is fully embrace all the public input, all the regulatory input we got. as a result it takes longer to complete. we'll open in 2018. >> how did you pick 2017 deadline? was it something out of the air? >> it was possible to do. absolutely everything fell into place at the right time. in sacramento they announced a year after we did they would open an arena a year earlier than we did. the timeline is available. >> what makes its appealing? >> number one, access of public
transportation. there is no site west of the hudson that's as transit rich as this site is. it is on 13 acres of piers falling in the bay built in 1912. it gives us a chance to bring 13 acres of the city back to life again and create something for the warriors and hosts events from entertainment and business events and provide ways for the city to interacted with the water that don't exist now. >> it is a massive undertaking. 13 acres on the water on crumbling piers. you are finding out the cost of rehabbing piers doubled. people say do they have the money for this? two, are they nuts? >> well. we have the money. no we are not nuts. this is about what the current warriors ownership group wants to accomplish in creating something great in term of the warriors franchise. if you look over the last three year of everything we said we would do everything has
happened. finance is the last of the problems. we are comfortable with the project as it stands today. even as expensive as it is today. we'll get it done. >> redesign is one reason. trying to accommodate various coastal commissions. are we going to see more redesigns? >> we committed to take all the public input available to us. we have over 100 public meetings. we have regulatory input. we'll create a project that san francisco is proud of. that requires taking the time to incorporate those suggestions into our design. which is what we have done. >> next thing, tomorrow a group of san franciscoians is going down with 15,000 signatures to go on the ballot saying if you want to build the waterfront arena you'll have to go to voters on height limits. where do you stand on that idea of this proposition mandating you have to go to the voters.
>> first thing we want to see if it qualifies, how it affects our project. this is not a warriors focus initiative. this affects all development along the water front. whether it is pier 70 or the giants project. we'll look at what that means. we have fully embraced the process from day one. if the rules are going to change we'll fully embrace the process as the rules change. >> some people suggested, as it stands for you to finance this deal without public money, you are asking for permission to build a condo tower across the street and a hotel. and use that money to help pay for the arena and the work. some people suggested knocking those off the project knocking those off the project in order pass easier. are you thinking of eliminating the hotel and condos? >> this is across the street
from the market. they are not on the piers themselves. >> this is the path the city gave us to absolutely have the ability to invest $180 million of warriors money in the city's infrastructure in rehabilitating the piers. there has to be some value derived from that. exactly what it will be we are not hundred percent committed to. >> it is an interesting interview. it is tough to tag you down. yes or no you are still studying and looking. i'm going to ask an easy question. broncos or seahawks? >> i'm rooting for the 49ers to be back in the superbowl next year. >> this arena will definitely be the centerpiece of san francisco and bay area talk this coming year. bay area weather watchers
have something to celebrate on this groundhog's day. punxsatawney phil saw his shadow this morning. if today's bay area rainfall is any indication, yes, there will be six more weeks of winter. while we don't have punxsatawney phil we have our own doppler radar to look at the rain. >> it has been falling for the past several hours. be aware if you have outdoor plans, the rain has been falling for the past couple of hours. we have arrival delays at san francisco. if you have anybody coming in or out check your flights. we'll see the rain continue and breezy weather in some spots in the bay area. a chance of thunderstorms. we have seen lightning strikes off the coast. the rain will be ending late tonight. we are only going to make it up into the 50s. it is going to be a cool and breezy day. we'll dry it out for next

going to get your guy or not. >> it is fun for everybody regardless. mayor lee was washington for the state of the union speech where a big theme was how to help the middle class. >> back home one of the biggest challenges is mayor faces is skyrocketing rents and housing prices that are forcing middle class out of cities. >> we sat down with the mayor after the speech to find out how he plans to handle the problem. >> what is your topic driving you this year? >> housing, jobs, transportation, all those are important to residents of the city. i'm going to keep working on them. we'll open them up. they are under construction. we are only 49 squares miles. unless we build more housing, pressure on the existing housing will be higher and more because people want to live here. >> not just people around here. you are dealing with globalization. when we see high-rises
downtown, a lot of people see apartments. but if you are a foreign investor, you see basically a safety deposit box where you can park $500,000 to $1 in real value. it is safer than keeping money in india, china and indonesia. we are competing with that market as well. >> the city of san francisco can't act just alone. i have to talk to counter parts to build enough housing around the transportation corridors we have been building the last couple decades. >> your problem is while oakland becomes the brooklyn to your manhattan, or san jose becomes the connecticut to your new york, the people in the city feel like they are getting priced out. >> if we don't build more housing, by the way to change ways evictions happen to protect long term tenants. if we don't build more housing that pressure will be there and get worse. there are more people coming to
the bay area region. >> when you say affordable to a lot of people that's a combined income of under $70,000. in san francisco to be middle class it is $90,000. middle class doesn't qualify for affordable housing and can't afford market housing. >> middle class in san francisco ranges more between $75,000 to $50,000. they are being priced out of two or three bedroom apartments and housing. that's the kind of housing we want to build. that's what we are building in hunter's point shipyard and treasure island. these are the types of housing want to to build. when we are doing that people are saying we like what's happening in the public school system. those two things are the most important things for all of residents including the middle class to stay here and grow here. foreign investment is an
interesting part of all of this. is there anything good about it? it is driving up the price. >> it gets the projects off the ground and provides seed money and guarantee for somebody out there thinking of building that they'll get a return. on the overall is it good for people living here? that's the big question. people say no because it makes it too high priced for locals. >> a lot of other cities in this country would be craving the investment san francisco has. >> they don't have a tight squeeze on affordable housing for the rest of the city where everything is impacted because we are small. ,,
